Join the DSIF Team

Do you have an interest in investing, entrepreneurship and startups? Would you like to learn how to invest, expand your network and gain valuable experience? Then the Dutch Student Investment Fund (DSIF) might be the right place for you! We are looking for passionate students to join the team and help us run and grow the first student venture capital fund in the Netherlands!

Who can join the team?

DSIF is all about diversity and openness. That is why students from different backgrounds and studies from the University of Twente and Saxion University of Applied Science are welcome to apply. That way, we get a dynamic and multi-disciplinary team to lead DSIF with creativity and expertise. We do not ask for previous affiliation or experience in finance, investment and venture capital. Any previous knowledge in this area is of course great. But for now, passion and willingness to learn will do!

What do we offer?

DSIF offers you a unique opportunity to expand your horizons in the domain of venture capital investing and startups. The positions within the fund are flexible and can be part-time (board position) or project-based (ambassador position). The difference between the board and ambassador is that the board members, apart from their roles, are also investors. They discuss, assess and financially support the startups.

Both for board members and ambassadors, we provide a solid network of partners that can be a valuable connection. This can for example be a partner that gives you trainings where you can learn more about investing. You will also get the chance to work on teamwork, organizational skills, time-management, communication…the options are limitless. At the end of the day, your time at DSIF is what you make of it!
